The Ducks have recalled goaltender Frederik Andersen
from the Norfolk Admirals, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Andersen, 24 (10/2/89), has won both of his contests with the Admirals this season, including a 33-save shutout on Oct. 11 vs. Binghamton (5-0 final score). He also recorded Norfolk’s first victory of the season, a 35-save, 3-2 shootout win on Oct. 5 at Hartford. Andersen has a 0.96 goals-against average (GAA) and .971 save percentage (SV%) over the two contests in which he has appeared. In two preseason contests with Anaheim last month, the 6-4, 230-pound netminder recorded a 2.45 GAA and .895 SV%. He was assigned to Norfolk on Sept. 25.
Selected by Anaheim in the third round (87th overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Andersen has gone 26-18-1 in 49 career AHL contests with a 2.14 GAA, .931 SV% and five shutouts. The Herning, Denmark native won six consecutive games from Jan. 25-Mar. 1 for Norfolk in 2012-13, recording a 1.31 GAA and .954 SV% during that span. Andersen ranked sixth in the AHL in GAA (third among rookies) and second in SV% (led all rookies) in 2012-13 with a 24-18-1 record, 2.19 GAA and .929 SV%.
